Port of Airlie on show
PORT of Airlie was recently on show in Sydney. PRD Nationwide Whitsunday held an information evening to co-incide with the Sydney International Boat Show to promote Port of Airlie and what the Whitsundays has to offer.
Principal of PRD Nationwide Christie Leet said the evening was well received and attended by a mixture of developers, financiers and investment sales organisations including some current Whitsunday property owners and potential buyers.
PRD Nationwide also released annual data on the evening, reporting a large increase in sales volumes across Airlie Beach, Cannonvale and Jubilee Pocket.
They unveiled the PRD development map which was a focal point of the night as many had existing land interests and were wanting to see what the Whitsunday coast will look like when fully developed. According to Mr Leet, the Whitsundays have seen eight consecutive quarters of sales growth with this being the first time in his 20 years of experience that the local market had surpassed both Townsville and Mackay based on investment returns and the expectation for capital growth.
Mr Leet also said that analysis of recent sales data provided by PRD Whitsundays over the last 18 months showed that Port of Airlie had comprised 13 per cent of total market share with over $30 million in sales.
“What has been particularly impressive in the first half of 2014 is the multiple sales in the latest release of The Cove waterfront home sites,” he said.
“The Port of Airlie is one stand-out performer in both its ongoing development and its emergence as a community returning Airlie Beach living to the waterfront.”
